FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE
As the new manager of the West Ham, I will soon turn my dreams into reality I joined this club at 11 years old and made it into the first team at the age of 17 but then Left to join beloved Arsenal. No I am not going to lie, I do not support West Ham as a football team but my love for this club will grow as a accomplish many things as manager of this club.
I would first like to address the embarrassing technical ability of some England players.
England is in a bad state. We are not going to win the World Cup for 4 or 8 years. We have the best league in the world but it is because you have players from all over the world. There are no home-grown players with West Ham I want to focus on home grown players expand the youth system and trying to get the best out of English players. It is not all about height and strength its about ability, technicality. We need a revolution.
“Like the French did before they won the World Cup and European Championships — and like Spain today.”
This is because what they are teaching the young is not right. It is a big emphasis on winning, being tough, jumping, being an athlete, strong, fit and quick.
The number one thing is England should be striving to have 11 masters of the ball. 11 Iniestas, 11 Xavis. When you have these kind of players you can do whatever you want. Of course you won’t have 11 Xavis I am exaggerating but you could end up with one, two or three.
This is the reason why I have not said I want to win the world Cup with England but with Nigeria.
I was asked to come and do a very important job and I will live up to all expectations.
